BRENTWOOD - A Brentwood man will be released from jail next month after serving six months for killing his elderly mother.

Officials say Juan Gonzalez admitted to the murder.

However, prosecutors believe Gonzalez killed his 98-year-old mother inside their Brentwood home because he found out he had skin cancer. Prosecutors say Gonzalez feared he was dying and that no one would be able to take care of his mother. Gonzalez could have been sent to prison for five to 15 years.
